3 Tips to Prepare Your Back to Sit at Your Desk

By Virginia Laird

Far too many jobs require employees to sit behind a desk for long periods of time. This can lead to back pain. If you are one who finds yourself strapped to a desk for far too long, chiropractors suggest there are a few things you can do to get your job done while avoiding back pain. These tips include:

  • Get up and stretch periodically
  • Adjust your computer screen
  • Make plans to visit your chiropractor

Get Up and Stretch Periodically

If you are one of the many who work behind a desk all day long, chiropractors advise that you need to get up  and stretch. Research suggests that sitting for long periods of time can cause tension in the back to build which can lead to tension and pain. Rather than having this take over your body, it is best to add light stretches. There is no need to begin taking a yoga mat to work, simple stretching of the back and neck can help release this tension. Chiropractors suggest you take one break at least once each hour to get up and move.

Adjust Your Computer Screen

By nature of their jobs, millions find themselves chained to a computer screen daily. This can prove to be painful. Chiropractors have suggested that those who find themselves in this predicament should consider adjusting their computer screens to be eye level. This can prevent the hunching or stretching to see your screen. For many, this may require placing something below your screen to give it a boost. 

Make Plans to Visit Your Chiropractor 

Chiropractors are great at helping to alleviate back pain. When you make a trip to your chiropractor will evaluate the joints of your spine. Through daily activity, these joints can shift, causing restriction and pain. Using adjustments, your chiropractor will work to restore function and reduce pain. While this can be intimidating, many admit these adjustments can be therapeutic and stress relieving as well.
